Aiken Lifetips 6/13/2014Nurul Afifah
This post is going to be so lame and I might even going to delete it. HAHA ME.
I got awful skin problem. It started during matriculation year and it never resolve. I thought at first it the hormone thing but I got my period during Form 2 and got excellent skin untill only when I got to matriculation college. Actually, the real culprit here is change of environment + awful lot of stress + my ignorance on being a good skin care person
Dear Awesome, whats with the asthma thing?
Well, peoples with asthma tend to have skin problem. It related to allergy which is to long to be elaborated so we will just keep it this way "you got some sort of skin problem if you got asthma"
usually, it may related to so called RESDUNG.
Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. I am so not that person who got to become really skin care cautios freak kind of person. Mainly because I never got one and at matriculation college it was not as severe as current condititon. I don't know how much stupidity I got back at that day whereby I neglect to take immediate care.
Now. My skin at it worst. I need to become this kind of freak or else I easily will culture a new pimples. Oh. I learn to properly care for my skin but did not keep much to the routine so it kind of being on and off kind of way.
During researching for better skin care, I have tried tonnes of product and now I am sticking to Aiken. Alhamdulillah that my skin don't get weird side effect due to changing of products. Some even make my skin lighten about 2 to 3 tones brighter. But not my pimples scar however. Of course it have don't nothing to manage my pimples outbreak.
Aiken on the other work well to actually reduce my pimples outbreak + the scar. I also feel a lot more comfortable to use their cleanser. Basically, it is quite mild for an acne treatment products.
I am using their cleanser, toner and cream/tea tree oil. All of these product basically have Tea Tree Oil as it main substance for anti acne properties. They also have moisturizer and I do love how it make my skin look hydrated but then my skin look much oily thus I have stop using it.

The best way for me to use this products is to clean my face twice daily and followed by toner. Then I will apply the cream (after cleaning my face) and place when I got pimples or prone to have pimples outbreak. The cream and oil really work well to fight the acne like those Oxy cream. Basically, those are using benzoyl peroxide while this Aiken products are using Tea Tree Oil.
The cream is much milder than the oil one's and of course less oily. Since the oily were making my skin look too oily, I only applied it before sleep or if i am staying in my room in the day. This have at some reduces the speed of effectiveness as compared when i am using the cream one. Effectiveness here meaning to get skin like my left cheek (picture below).
Though oil ones are quite strong it give like scale where you can actually peel it off. I think it got pengelupasan thingy. Oil does effectively kill the pimples faster though I am not using it as frequent as the cream. But, i am not much of a fan when it seem like the scar are getting somewhat worse. It will go off eventually but with my on/off mode, its going to be a long time.
Here come the pictures. My face look quite oily since I am wearing a mask. And also I am using my webcam, so do add extra enhancement to every details in the picture. It is quite bad than this pictures potrayed~~
This is my current face, I couldn't show a before face since my face now got even worst recently due to stress about my exam, funny sleeping schedule and not to mention I scratch my skin (another stupid bad habit of mine, I just can't help it) with vaseline lotion applied on my hand. (
stupid stupid stupid stupid)
As you can see, my left cheek is better than my right cheek. This is because (why does it feel like I am doing those lab reports??) during my rajin/diciplined time I managed to tone down my left cheek. My right cheek always got more pimples but since I don't do much care now, the pimples start to bermaharajalela back. On the other hand, my left cheek is rather spared since the pimples are, well, kind of all gone thus rendering its ability to outbreak.
Pimple my fellow friend is the blockage of pores gone bad with the help of bacteria. That is why it is sort of localizing it outbreak. The act of not caring much of your skin makes it a suitable place for it to live. Not to meantion additional predisposing factor like hormonal imbalance and stuff.
Yes. The perks of being pharmacy student.
Discusing on predisposing factors for MY pimples outbreak.
- Picking my pimple/pimples scar
- Not enough rest/sleep
- Didn't clean oil out of my face frequently
These is my issues. Point 2 to 4 is where I couldn't help myself at all. My life curently is having all sort of stress. Though if won't affect much on my emotion it surely somehow affect so much to my skin. How bad it is? imagine waking up with two to three pimples magically arise from nowhere. It is usually swollen thus making it look hideous. It usually now arise around my mouth area and my chin. Mostly it will become even worst when I keep on kopek the parut and stuff.
|rather toned down actually|
|newly formed jerawat|
Another problem is, the pimples scar won't go away. I have tried not to pick it and stuff cause they say it cause the scar. But it is still there!! And since area around scars got pimples, I couldn't apply the scar cream as I want to apply the acne cream.
Basically, if I get to routinely do the twice daily wash + toner + cream/oil it will surely help. I need to also quickly wash my skin with water when it gets too oily and wipe it dry. Occasionally, I will put those mask to remove clogged pores which not only remove the pores, I will also less scartching skin and some Savee mask every now and then. Lastly, I need to stop touching my face especially with lotion on.
I don't wear make up. It doesn't feel comfortable and it surely didn't feel OK to tenyeh stuff on my pimples. Though I do wear BB cream and Johnson talc powder. When I feel like it lah~~
